YMF Jazz Orch Album Project

£550 of £500 goal

Raised by 32 people in 12 months
We are the York Music Forum Youth Jazz Orchestra and we want to record an album by the end of Summer term 2016.

To do this we need to raise £500 to cover the cost of a professional recording engineer and to rent a suitable recording space (not a recording studio... could never afford that!) and to create CDs.  We will sell the CDs to allow us to buy some decent big band music stands. We'll also use the recording to try and get on the bill of jazz festivals in the north of England.

I'll mix and master the recording (for free obv!) and we'll create something very professional-sounding indeed.

Basically, we want you to buy your CDs in advance.... £10 secures you a CD!

We don't receive any funding to run the Jazz Orchestra... rehearsal sessions are paid for by those who are in it or by their parents.

Please help us and we'll be ever so grateful!

I'm so proud of the young musicians who have recorded this wonderful album!

Thank you all so much for your support and I'll be in touch to find out if you want your CDs posting or you'll be collecting them at our album launch gig on 02 November at the Post Office Club in York.

Thanks again!

I have the WAV stems (the recordings from each microphone) from our sound engineer (about 8 gb's worth)! So I can start the editing/mixing/mastering which will take about a month I would guess. Exciting!!

Well, last night we recorded drums and congas meaning we've just a few bits left to record then on with the mixing/mastering etc!

We're planning an album launch gig hopefully in early November but I'll keep you informed.

Thanks
